I am a historian of science and technology with a special interest in law and public policy, and I received a PhD in History of Science and Medicine from Yale University (2016). My first book, currently in progress, is a history of software patenting in the United States. My primary research interests stand at the intersection of the histories of technology, business, and law, but my broader interests include the history of epidemics and women, gender, and sexuality studies.

PLATO History Project

Writing a book (Pantheon Books, Fall 2017) on the history of the PLATO system and the rise of cyberculture. The book is called The Friendly Orange Glow (see http://friendlyorangeglow.com for more info). The PLATO system was developed starting in 1960 at the University of Illinois and by the 1970s was a worldwide interconnected network of CYBER mainframe-based systems with high-resolution, touch-sensitive gas-plasma display panel terminals, interactive multimedia, instant messaging, chat rooms, multiplayer games (including MUDs), message forums, online newspapers, virtual goods, screen sharing, and many other innovations assumed to have come much later.
